VUMA! Skills Zone Project

The aim of the AgShare project is to create a scalable and sustainable method of filling critical gaps in agriculture related curriculum through a redesigned MSc process. Graduate students are engaged in action and participatory research which connects them to communities and smallholders and through rigorous research practices produces high quality peer reviewed research, case studies and extension materials. The scalable process requires a collaboration of organizations that provide guidelines for action research, how to produce OERs, how to disseminate materials for research and community stakeholders. These OER materials fill critical resource gaps in African MSc agriculture curricula which can be modified for other downstream uses. African agriculture universities, faculty, students, researchers, NGO leaders, extension staff, and farmers will participate in building AgShare by demonstrating its benefits and outcomes and by building momentum and support for growth.
